Saudi coalition urges Yemen separatists to honor Riyadh deal

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — A Saudi-led coalition mired in a yearslong war in Yemen has urged Emirati-backed separatists to honor the terms of a Riyadh peace deal and share control of Aden with the country’s internationally recognized government. The statement comes after the separatists’ Southern Transitional Council again claimed sole control Sunday of Aden. That’s a Red Sea port that serves as the seat of the internationally recognized government. Yemen’s Iran-backed Shiite rebels, known as Houthis, hold the country’s capital, Sanaa. Yemen’s war has pushed the Arab world’s poorest nation to the brink of famine and killed over 100,000 people.
